Songwriters Association of Canada Blog Challenge 2013 Part 1


I’m honoured that the Songwriters Association of Canada has asked me to be their guest blogger and group moderator for Challenge 2013. It’s very meaningful for me, because I studied with Pat Pattison when I was living in Austin, and I was the secretary for The Austin Songwriter’s Group. We were a very tightly knit bunch. At least one of us got famous. And I got Pat’s autograph on the inside cover of Writing Better Lyrics (first edition)!

We are half way through our six week Coursera Songwriting class with Pat. Here are the links to the first three blogs:


Week One “Building The Foundation for a Song”

Week Two “The Adventure of Prosody”

Week Three “Scheming With Rhymes for Better Songwriting”


Thanks for checking in with me here, and let me know what kinds of posts would be helpful to you.
